Thanks Bob, that means alot to me. It takes a huge amount of time to put this together right. I hope you enjoyed the daily video clips. I thought it would add to the experience of the ride for the viewer/reader. Something new for me and I may continue to do more this way.

I have one more big off road ride in the works.


I also want to thank Matt and Bob for allowing me to utilize some of their shots, and a big thanks to Bill and Matt for providing me with some video to work with

HI Sam
Really enjoying the ride report. Great job. I still can't believe I missed this ride. Sucks when work gets in the way of a good time.

Thanks for the props guys. Glad to hear our products held up to some difficult "testing". Looks like you all really put the big bikes though the ringer. LOVE IT!!

Yes, we are somewhat settled in but not totally moved, and yes I did go back east, but to pick up the grand kiddies, want an adventure fly from Baltimore to Boise with three children ages 5 1/2, 3 1/2, and 1 1/2. they are here right now, and we are headed out to go camping today. I loved your RR, truly Epic indeed, I only watched the 1st video earlier, will go back and view the rest later, got to go, I have kids to love and chase around.

Thank you so much for sharing, I love seeing you enjoying the great PNW.

Fantastic job Sam. I'm envious of your ability with the vids and pictures. Not to mention riding time.

Great Job!! Sam.
Between the thorough photo coverage and hours of video editing, you really brought us all along for the ride.
I kinda feel like I need a shower.
I also wanted to thank you again for your help routing Littlewan and I through your beloved Idaho, we enjoyed it very much.

Nice to see the big dual sport bikes put to work. Another mission accomplished, and looking forward to the next.

I was looking over the Idaho Sam travel brochure and noticed one of the
requirements was "must be able to bench press a GS"

Great report sam. Really though, from the looks of the "light and fast" packing of those bikes Surely one of the crew had a chain saw packed in there. Maybe it wouldn't start .

Hey Matt . Really sorry for the overly extended lack of response, but I have been busy riding and being off the grid (no internet in the mountains, not to mention a lack of cell service in some out reaching areas. I do not have a smart phone phone.

Your welcome on the highlighting of your map hope it helped. Since just returning home I am in the process of catching up on you guys RR........... I know you've heard this before but your friggin crazy and crazy good riding the Blue Meany.

Just put my Army obstacle Breaching training to work We had the man power and we had the know how, but most of all there was no going back. OH, yea those are Hilleberg Soulos... good eye.


Again sorry for the long delay in responding, I am sorta licking my wounds and healing up after my ride over the Lolo and other assorted riding. I managed to tag a Pickup on a blind corner along the Salmon River shook me up real good.


What a Summer managed to log in around 11,000 miles on three different bikes.

Hope you're okay!
Lots of blind corners on the Lolo - we almost got taken out by a KTM 9x0, hugging the inside (he was on the wrong side, coming up a hill).

Now, take it easy for a while.
Relax.

have a drink.


Hope you feel better soon!

Hi ya LB... I had intentions of making it but I think I'll bow out..... sorry, I just need to rest up a bit. Do say say Hi for me.

LB, I know your not going to believe me but I didn't take many pictures so a RR may be difficult. I lead a group of 7 they sure were busy taking pictures though.

Guilty as charged, that's sounds like something I would do, unless there's a heavy traffic flow. I've been known to slightly exceed the forest Service speed limit of 25

OK, as I sit here with the onslaught of winter and since I put this up in prime riding weather (August) I am giving it a shameless second chance bump, just for those now sitting at home in winter bound bliss, dreaming and preparing for next summers adventures.

My shameless bump.. winter read with lots of videos. I had a real good summer.

I just finished reading and watching the report as part of my research for my own Idaho ride in late July 2013. I will be doing it south to north, after the CDT down to Yellowstone.

Great job, with lots of info on what to expect.

Thanks for the effort put into doing this. I know how long videos take to edit and produce, not to mention the rest of the report.
